Took the long test (this testing is pretty fun!)

Here are the results:
Federal vs. Unitary -- Neutral; 55% to 45%
Democracy vs. Authority -- Democratic; 74% to 26%
Globalist vs. Isolationist -- Globalist; 75% to 25%
Militarist vs. Pacifist -- Moderate Pacifist; 37% to 63%
Security vs. Freedom -- Moderate Freedom; 33% to 67%
Equality vs. Markets -- Extreme Equality; 80% to 20%
Secular vs. Religious -- Moderate Secular; 63% to 37%
Progress vs. Tradition -- Moderate Progressive; 60% to 40%
Assimilationist vs. Multiculturalist -- Multiculturalist; 26% to 74%

What I found interesting is how Progress v. Tradition came out as "Moderate Progressive"; these political tests generally put me much further left than that. I think it's because this test was rather thorough and separated views on equality (where I am recorded as Extreme), from issues surrounding immigration, religion and technology -- and other things that often get lumped in together.

Ooh, another test!

Libertarian Socialism:

Equality vs. Markets -- Socialist (78% Equality)
Nation vs. World -- Internationalist (78.7% World)
Liberty vs. Authority -- Libertarian (77.3% Liberty)
Tradition vs. Progress -- Very Progressive (79.1% Progress)

Ah... Fewer categories and I'm being called "Very Progressive" again.

It's like being in NSG :p

Given that, for no specific reason but a confluence of factors, being a part of an active region doesn't seem to make sense for me anymore, and I'd prefer to retreat back into hermitage. Peace and blooms to all.

Congratulations on the good news about your degree! There'll always be a sunny spot for you in Forest, should you choose to return.
